Enter a world of betting with God, hard-boiled detectives, the rigors of Pundit School, drinking at the VFW, the joys of divorce, Russian brides, Jesus’ cell phone, bull riders, cartoon doctors, first world worries, grammar hospitals, drinking with clowns, and the worries of a clown. This book will shift your brain out of normal-mode, and will teach it the joys of taking the odd turns. Become Skewed.
